Tour Details

After boarding your air-conditioned bus for your St. Lucia tour, usually in groups of no more than 20 guests, you will drive through Castries where various points of interest will be pointed out by your tour guide. Then, follow the winding road up the Morne for a panoramic view of the city, the harbor and even, on a clear day, as far as the island of Martinique. You will continue up to the Morne complex to view the Inniskilling Monument, erected in honor of the British 27th Inniskilling Regiment that captured the Morne from the French in 1796. This area is also home to one of the island's highest educational institutions, the OECS Secretariat, and also the main television station.

A short drive away is the Howelton Estate. This estate has a rich history and features a cafe, artist studio, and Caribelle Batik, where a short stop is made to see artists creating their works of art by using hot wax and dye. You will also have the opportunity to shopping for Batik items.

Your journey continues along the secondary roads through the hills on the outskirts of the city, taking you through small communities with scenic views highlighting the Atlantic and Caribbean coasts.

Stopping at a viewpoint within the community of La Guerre, you will get a spectacular view overlooking the Marquis Estate, once the largest banana plantation on the island. Your drive continues through other communities on your way to Monchy, where you will have wonderful views of Rodney Bay and Pigeon Island. You will then descend the hill to the private home of the Sonys' Stony Hill.

This property offers a well-manicured lawn edged by a tropical garden and a breathtaking view of the Rodney Bay area. Tasty refreshments and a selection of local fruits handpicked from the gardens await you while you relax in the courtyard, or next to the pool if thatís your preference. Restrooms are available before your short journey back to the hotel.
